at Elements Wellness Center

Introduction to GYROKINESIS® Workshop held at the Elements Center Wellness & Fitness in Glover Park, Washington DC.

It was a first for BeeBodi© Founder, Kayla Harley as an Apprentice Instructor.
The evening brought a numbers in those who were finishing off a work week in the heart of the city, freelancers, retirees and other fitness/wellness enthusiasts. A total of 6 participants.







Each class participant came in with different needs that catered to their lifestyle and day-to-day activities. Rose, a retired senior and golfer had a "swayed back" from overuse of rotation in the lumbar spine with accompanying inward rotated knees. As she began to become more familiar with the concepts of GYROKINESIS® *lengthening energetically, by the activating the fifth line from the soles of the feet, thru the body, up and out of the top of the head* habits in her body began to change subtly, simply by bringing awareness to them.






There were two participants who were familiar with GYROKINESIS® and come in to further their understanding and gain new information from the prospective of this young-comer (Kayla).

One participant, Lauren said, "I feel taller" after the first portion of the workshop seated on the stools.

During the break there was an vibrance in the room. Workshop attendees spoke amongst themselves, shared laughter and readily returned back into the space to continue.

Although the workshop was a of a group setting, the instructor made sure to give individual attention, feedback and hands on cuing to each participant.

The workshop was a success. Workshop attendees spoke highly of their experience and walked away having learned something they'd not known before.


The instructor, is grateful for the experience and for the opportunity to have shared her journey of becoming a Certified GYROKINESIS® Trainer with such willing and supportive movers.

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

Keeping Dance Alive, St. Croix Arts Community Outreach

 In 2017, I was at home in Washington DC bedridden and removed from everything that I knew.  My life as a Dancer as I knew it....was no longer. I could barely walk, performing menial tasks around the house was a burden for me. I often felt faint and dizzy. My nervous system had taken a hard hit from the brutal cold winter of Chicago. The winds  shook my bones and my days of job hunting, street performing in the Chicago O'Hare Airport for bills and just aimlessly walking in the snow drove my body into a state of shock. PH.

I'd returned home with question in my mind and heart as to how I would move forward. I was diagnoses with a rare chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Remote Work Saves the Day!

  People tend not to understand. Being an Artist means that you get no days off. It’s a 24/7 kind of job whether a Creative Commissioning Artist, a Teacher, Administrator, Advocate or Affiliate there is no way to clock in and clock out of Inspiration. It just hits you and you have to be ready. That’s why it ’ s helpful to just check out of life and into a hotel at times. Not to vacation, but to get a good night's rest, wake up and actually get things done. Maya Angelou, Pulitzer Prize Writer said that she couldn’t write in her home because she was surrounded by too beautiful of things. I get it. There are layers to inspiration in if you’re not in the right setting it can mess with your mental space too.
